Thelma's Corner provides storytelling outlet

(Continued)

GROUP PARTICIPATION

Homework isn’t uncommon either. Douglas has given a few assignments to the group. 

“The homework worked out well,” she said. 

In one instance, she asked them to bring in a poem or verse from their past and had them memorize and recite it.

“We had a lot of fun with challenging people to remember something,” she said.

Another assignment was to bring in a picture that they wanted to talk about. The meeting room, with the chairs arranged in a circle, encourages group participation. 

“Whatever happens, don’t miss it” has become Douglas’s motto. Thelma’s Corner attendees had the slogan printed on about 30 T-shirts, which they wear to the meetings.

“It’s really a good motto for anybody at any age,” Douglas said. “Whatever happens, don’t miss it.”
